Moving Subjects
By

Rating
"Moving Subjects" is the first of its kind to make a case not simply for the necessity of a spatial analysis of imperial formations, but for the indispensability of an investigative approach that links space and movement with the domain of the intimate. Through a combination of careful archival research and a commitment to excavating the variety of 'mobile intimacies' at the heart of imperial power, its agents, and its interlocutors, this volume offers new evidence and approaches for scholars engaged in capturing the historical nuances of imperial domination.The book's contributors investigate how intimacy was constructed across the restless world of empire, a world that depended on the circulation of capital and commodities, the exchange of systems of governance and surveillance, and the movement of labourers, slaves, soldiers, and settlers. Contributors are Tony Ballantyne, Antoinette Burton, Adrian Carton, David Haines, Katherine Ellinghaus, Charlotte Macdonald, Michael A. McDonnell, Kirsten McKenzie, Michelle Moran, Fiona Paisley, Adele Perry, Dana Rabin, Christine M. Skwiot, Rachel Standfield, Frances Steel, Elizabeth Vibert, and Kerry Wynn.

Reviews

"A significant contribution to some lively areas of historical scholarship, conceptualizing them in new ways: the history of the body, the history of sexuality, the 'new imperial' history, the history of settler societies, and the intersections of race, gender, and class in all of these." Ann Curthoys, co-editor of Connected Worlds: History in Transnational Perspective
